Brazil's Modern Poets



In this brand new presentation, Panorama Brasil turns their focus to the great lyricists of Brazil.

From the earliest days of samba, Brazil has produced lyricists capable of social insight, cutting wit and subtle beauty. From the protest songs of the dictatorship eras, to the intimacy of bossa nova, Panorama Brasil presents incredible songs from some of Brazil’s greatest modern poets, including Chico Buarque, Fernando Brant, Vinicius de Moraes and Edu Lobo.

Panorama Brasil is led by drummer/composer Alastair Kerr, a long-time student of Brazilian music and recognised as one of Australia’s leading exponents of Brazilian percussion. For this very special performance, they are joined by singers Jacqueline Gawler and Diana Clark, and virtuoso guitarist Doug de Vries.
